|The Regent Berlin: Two Michelin stars at “Fischers Fritz”|
Brussels/Berlin, November 2009
For the third consecutive year, The Regent Berlin’s Fischers Fritz restaurant has earned two stars from Michelin, the French guide to fine dining. Chef de Cuisine Christian Lohse has maintained his crown as Berlin’s only 2 Michelin-starred Chef for his classic French cuisine with a contemporary twist. In fall 2007, Lohse’s dedication to his craft and relentless pursuit of perfection has placed him firmly at the forefront of Berlin’s culinary world, when he became the first Berlin chef in 13 years, who merit 2 Michelin stars.
“I am delighted to be celebrating this most sought after culinary honor, with Christian Lohse and his team”, says Stefan Athmann, General Manager at The Regent Berlin. “To receive two stars from Michelin is an impressive achievement, to retain them for the third succeeding year, is a great motivation for us all to continue to strive even further in the pursuit of excellence.”
By sustaining the two Michelin stars for the third time, Christian Lohse confirms his position as one of the most celebrated chefs in Germany and follows up on his previous awards. Prior to his engagement at The Regent Berlin he worked at such renowned places like 3-starred “L’Espérance” in Vezelay, the “Guy Savoy” in Paris and “The Dorchester” in London, where he became the personal chef to the Sultan of Brunei.
The Fischers Fritz’ menu is an artistic and modern approach to French-inspired cuisine, featuring exquisite fish and seafood delicacies. Subtle yet sophisticated, they complement the restaurant’s atmosphere of balance and class. Simple creations distinguished by the high quality of fresh produce have made The Regent Berlin’s gourmet restaurant a place of pilgrimage for gourmets. Lohse sees the award as a distinction for one, but also as a motivating reward: “I am extremely proud of the great team effort of everyone involved in sustaining two Michelin Stars for the third time in a row. It demonstrates the commitment and dedication of the team’s exacting standards. Our challenge in the gourmet gastronomy is, to maintain a high-level consistency day by day.”
